18th Century Lowestoft Porcelain Plate Blue and White Hollow Rock Fence Peony Pattern English Circa 1780
This is a wonderful example of a late 18th century Lowestoft small plate/saucer. This rare saucer was produced circa 1780 in England by Lowestoft. This Chinese inspired pattern is known as the “Hollow Rock Fence Peony” Pattern and is hand painted in underglaze blue. As is common on all Lowestoft porcelain, the base is unmarked.
Measuring: Diameter 4 7/8” (12.5 cm). Height 1 2/8” (3 cm).
Condition: This rare saucer is in good condition for its age. The hand painted design is crisp and in excellent condition. There is a historic crack underneath the slight discoloration mark on the face and base of the saucer. The crack runs from the rim of the saucer to the center of the base/face of the saucer. There is a minor “Y” shape crack to the center base face of the saucer. There is a tiny fleabite chip to the foot rim of the saucer buts it is very minor.
Lowestoft pieces are uncommon, this is a great opportunity to own a rare piece of early English porcelain from a highly sought after factory. Such pieces of early blue and white porcelain work fantastically well in your early federal period interior. A small grouping of small plates makes a fabulous conversation piece, as their ancient production date was prior to the setting up of The United States Constitution...wow!!!
